Stirrings of the Mind

The incessant buzz

of thoughts that shatter

thoughts that inspire

thoughts that pass unnoticed

unnerve me.


My ideas are raw,

unfinished, unsophisticated

likely to be scorned

or laughed at.

I silence the voice.


The bees in my bonnet

have multiplied

they do not let me sleep

threatening an explosion

if not released.


Expression helps sanity

I am not God, but

it is nothing to be scoffed at

I have a sane voice

amidst loud, ungodly creatures.

  1. Reblogged this on Making it write and commented:
    My thoughts have been a bit disordered lately, with the result that I keep starting poetry and not finishing it. None of it seems good enough. This morning, I woke up feeling insignificant. After doing a few things around the flat, I switched the computer on and decided I’d do a bit of reading. The first post I came to was written by Reena Saxina, and it changed my outlook.

    Just like that.

    I couldn’t miss the opportunity to share this lovely poem on my blog.

    I hope it has a similar positive effect on my readers.

      1. I’ve thought about that, but up to now, I haven’t felt willing to commit.
        I’ll do it. First I need to meditate, to put me in the right frame of mind to come up with a challenge.
        Thank you. You might have got me out of a rut that I’ve been digging my way into for months.


          1. Thank you so much for the offer – it was unexpected. I really want to take you up on it, but I’m scared to climb out of my box at present. I need a bit of time to process the idea. I’ve never Skyped; the thought of being on screen, with no background to distract the viewer terrifies me.
            I sound pathetic, but I wasn’t always this way. I thought I was unbreakable, but I broke, and I’m not fully repaired yet.
            I’ll get back to you in the next week or so.
            Meanwhile I’ll check out your website.

  2. “I have a sane voice
    amidst loud, ungodly creatures.”
    This poem is empowering. I felt a bolt of positive energy run through me when I read those last two lines.
    I see you’re an image and success coach. That explains your skillful manipulation of ideas. Can I re-blog this, please?
